8:01am
cuisines, a fourth of july festival, "early" this saturday morning, july 2nd. captioning funded by cbs >> new york city waking up to independence. >> beautiful day. >> happy holiday weekend. welcome to "the early show." i'm rebecca jarvis. >> i'm russ mitchell. good holiday weekend. we have our second annual taste of america today. we have chefs from all over the country, the best from everywhere, we have barbecue. >> we have barbecue, hotdogs from chicago. >> right. >> we don't want to give it all away to everyone right now. you do have to stick around >> stick around. >> i can guarantee you there's something from a lot of big cities across the country and really something for everyone here this morning. >> all good. the breaking news, former head of the international monetary fund is free to go anywhere he wants as long as he stays in the u.s.
8:02am
a judge friday released dominique strauss-kahn from the u.s. after prosecutors admitted there are problems with the rape case against him. sean hennessey of wcbs in new york has more. >> on this weekend strauss-kahn is enjoying his own freedom. the case is now hanging by a thread. for the first time in weeks, dominique strauss-kahn left his manhattan apartment finally free from house arrest gone with the ankle bracelet after prosecutors admitted there are problems with the housekeeper who accused him of sexual assault. >> there are substantial credibility issues. >> reporter: prosecutors admitted the 32-year-old told them a series of lies and her whereabouts after the attack,
8:03am
first claiming to hiding in the hallway, but later admitted to cleaning two rooms. >> i understand the circumstances surrounding the case from the viewpoint of the parties have changed substantially and i agree. >> reporter: the judge quickly returned $1 million bail to the former head of the international monetary fund, the 62-year-old strolled out of court all smiles, a far cry from the dark days in may when he was paraded before cameras in cuffs. it cost strauss-kahn his job and taking him out of the running for the french presidency. >> we believed from the beginning that this case was not what it appeared to be. >> reporter: the woman's lawyer, ken thompson blasted the d.a. asserting a sexual attack did happen. >> it is a fact that the victim here made some mistakes but that doesn't mean she's not a rape victim. but you cannot discount the powerful physical evidence that was left behind during that assault. >> reporter: legal experts say
8:04am
the accuser's credibility cripples the prosecution's case. >> this was always going to be a tough case. it was always going to be a he said/she said. >> strauss-kahn's lawyers say this case is a reminder of how easy it is to be a rush to judgment. strauss-kahn is still not allowed to leave the country. authorities continue to have his passport. he's back in court july 18th. >> for perspective on what's next, we turn to legal analyst and former federal prosecute your sunny hostin. he's free to travel throughout the united states but the judge did say the case is not over. >> the prosecution hasn't dropped charges yet. i anticipate that is coming. the district attorney sent what is called brady attorney, exculpatory letter. there be problems with this complaining witness and i think the problem is that she cannot
8:05am
withstand cross-examination on the witness stand. this case it was very much from the beginning a he said/she said. they were the only two in that hotel suite. if she can't withstand cross-examination especially someone as skill as ben broffman this case is going nowhere. >> why not drop the case right now? >> that's a team decision. the decision to drop a sexual assault case that has been indicted in front of a grand you jury is a difficult decision to make. you have a victim to consider and the large picture. there's a chilling effect when this happens a lot of women don't want to come forward, reluctant to come forward. a lot of pieces of the puzzle, but after reading this letter, i suspect that this case is going away and that the charges will be dropped and we'll probably see that july 18th. >> the letter you're referring
8:06am
to, the alleged victim her credibility is called into question, everything from her asiylum application, incorrect information to what she says happened in the hotel room and the series and sequence of events. in the case of a rape victim or somebody who alleges they are a rape victim, how important is their credibility in terms of proving that case against a defendant? >> it is paramount, especially in this type of case where there are only two people. there aren't any independent witnesses here. while there may be forensics, the defense is sure there's evidence of sexual contact, because this was consensual. he said that all along. he said that from the beginning. something happened but it was consensual. when you take the forensics out and just have one person's story against the other person's story the credibility of the victim of the accuser is paramount. now that her credibility has been significantly undermined and the prosecution has told the judge that it's undermined the
8:07am
prosecution told the defense team it is undermined, in a case like that the case goes away. >> sunny hostin thanks for joining us. we appreciate it. here's russ. >> thank you very much. a showdown is looming in washington over possible default by the federal government next month. the senate cut short its holiday vacation and will return to washington after the july 4th weekend. it will try to raise the national debt limit and rein in spending. whit johnson is in washington. >> reporter: democratic sources familiar with negotiations say a debt limit deal needs to be reached by july 22nd in order to get it through congress in time. meanwhile president obama took off to camp david for the weekend, leaving behind two sides that are still far apart. with president obama and congress off for the holiday weekend, tensions in washington were left simmering. they'll heat up again next week when all sides resume deficit
8:08am
reduction efforts that include raising the debt limit. bipartisan talks that identify more than $1 trillion worth of spending cuts stalled when democrats insisted on revenue increases. >> the main obstacle, i want to be very clear, to finding common ground is republicans stubborn insistence on protecting taxpayer funded giveaways to corporations and individuals that don't need the giveaways. >> reporter: after a news conference in which president obama berated congress for not spending enough time in washington -- >> you stay here. let's get it done. >> reporter: the senate canceled its july 4th break, unamused republicans reiterated their opposition to any tax increases and said it's the president who isn't getting the message. >> he says it isn't worth his time to come down and talk to republicans. i remember when he talked to republicans before and all we got was a lecture. >> reporter: friday treasury secretary timothy geithner repeated a warning to act
8:09am
quickly, urging congress to avoid the consequences of a default crisis. come august 2nd the u.s. could be unable to pay its bills for the first time ever. the rhetoric is getting louder. >> it's hard to see how they'll have a major breakthrough next week. >> reporter: with so much emphasis being placed on the upcoming week we checked with congressional republicans, democrats and the white house. so far, no bipartisan talks have been scheduled. russ? >> whit johnson at the white house thank you very much. publicly, democrats and republicans are sticking to their guns but are there behind the scenes negotiations taking place? let's turn to major garrett, good morning to you. >> good morning, russ. >> given the urgency of the situation, what do you think? are lawmakers talking on the phone this weekend, trying to hammer out a deal? >> there might be some talks but
8:10am
i don't think this is a productive weekend for negotiations. they've gone about as far as they can go. the white house and congressional democrats agreed to about depending on how you add everything together and which column you put the savings in up to $2 trillion in savings over the next ten years. to get to the $2 trillion they require $400 billion in new tax increases. republicans simply will not go there and everyone's position is not softening. it's hardening. the differences are getting deeper, russ, they're not getting calmer. so even though the senate's coming back next week, what's on the agenda is not budget talks, it's libya and senate republicans will filibuster attempt to talk about libya so they can talk about their own debt and deficit plans but those plans some of the congressional republicans have in the senate can't pass the senate so we'll have some more talk but i still think intense stalemate. >> democratic sources close to
8:11am
the negotiations are saying july 22nd is the drop dead deadline. you've covered washington for a long time. can you get anything done in congress in three weeks? >> the practical matter is this, russ, if they don't have something next week they can announce and begin working through the system and let all members house and senate begin to digest. i don't think july 22nd is realistic. you need at least a week in the senate and a week and a half or two weeks for the house to deal with this. we are almost already up against the practical deadline to move an enormous debt and deficit reduction pack annual. if something is smaller is done maybe it has some spending cuts that allow this is debt crisis to be averted for two or three months, it seems to be doable. i think we're up against the deadline already. >> who has the most to lose if the debt ceiling is not raised? >> i wrote in a column this week in "national journal" that everyone says there are grave consequences if there are debt
8:12am
crisis and markets tumble. grave is an adjective but it's going to be a noun for one party or another if this falls apart and there's a debt crisis and that will be decided in the 2012 election. both will position but the voter also finally decide was it republican's intransigence on taxes or the president's unwillingness to compromise and get a deal. both sides believe they can win and when both sides believe they can win and they fight to the end and the end may be ugly. >> major garret of "national journal" thanks so much, we appreciate it. >> russ, thank you. the economy showed some welcome signs of thrive week. the dow was up nearly 170 points on friday, for the week the index gained almost 650 points or 5.5%, the best week for the dow in two years. u.s. car sales are up about 7% last month, compared to the year before and gasoline prices, they continue to fall, so joining us
8:13am
now a look at what the number means and all of the numbers means is chrystia freeland, great to have you with us as always. >> great to be here. >> dow best performance in two years for the week. does that mean the soft patch in the last couple of months is behind us. >> i don't think it means happy days are here again but it means the fears people were starting to express about a double dip recession, those are receding a little bit. there was a lot of debate about what happened in may, why the numbers were so terrible, and some people were saying look, this is not a sign of the u.s. economy falling off a cliff again. this is mostly the japan effect. remember the tsunami and the earthquake, that really disrupted the global economy and supply chain and ben bernanke in particular was saying that this is the consequence of that, and this strong performance in june and especially i think what i took the most comfort from was
8:14am
manufacturing. manufacturing confidence really rebounded and that is a forward-looking long-term indicator so that should be what cheers us this fourth of july component. >> manufacturing, about 10%, but about half of the growth we've seen since coming out of the recession. a lot of people look at manufacturing as a big indicator. you mentioned the japan quake but gas prices were also another big headwind on american consumers which drive the economy. now they're down more than 20 cents in the last month. what does that change in terms of consumer spending and consumer attitudes going forward? >> it's huge, it's huge because gas is a big part of people's bills especially now taken has a big impact on people's confidence especially going into the summer when people are driving a lot. i think that fall in gas prices is significant and it's good news for the part of the economy that relies on consumer spending which has actually been pretty weak and even that car number you cited good for carmakers but
8:15am
overall car purchasing was down because of the japan effect, there weren't the hondas and toyotas for people to buy. >> jobs front and center even though we have the debt ceiling, everyone looking to washington, what are you going to do about this. the june number for the june jobs comes out next friday. people are expecting we're going to hear about 100,000 new jobs were added. we know that's not enough to drive real significant growth and driving down the unemployment rate. what do you see is the jobs picture going forward for the second half of the year? >> i think it has to get better. it's been so anemic. the real issue is how quickly does it improve. because the issue is you need to add about 150,000 jobs per month just to tread water. that's how many new people are coming into the workforce and as you know, rebecca, the really big issue is the long-term unemployment rate is incredibly high, higher than it's been since the second world war. that becomes a big social and
8:16am
political problem. those people it becomes harder and harder to get back to the workforce, if you've been out of work for more than six months. a lot of people have been. >> good point. chrystia freeland thanks for being with us. >> my pleasure. now to cbs news correspondent elaine quijano for the rest of this morning's headlines. good morning. >> good morning to you at home. it's not going to be much of a holiday weekend in minnesota. state parks and museums are closed, the result of a budget standoff between the democratic governor and republican legislative leaders. all highway rest areas are closed and you can't get a fishing license. social services are cut. 22,000 state workers are temporarily out of work. talks to end the deadlock are not expected to resume until tuesday at the earliest. some 12,000 residents who live near the nation's top nuclear weapons lab in los alamos, new mexico, could soon be heading back home. the wildfire is no longer a
8:17am
threat. the lab has been closed for almost a week as a safety precaution. the fire burned more than 162 square miles in the past six days. there were no reported injuries. the new york attorney general reportedly is promising to continue a civil fraud investigation of the bank of america. the investigation centers on whether the bank deliberately misled shareholders about massive losses on the books before it bought merrill lynch in 2008. the sports fans.
8:18am
cbs news correspondent jim axelrod reports. >> reporter: two and a half weeks after the dallas mavericks beat the miami heat for the championship, it looks like that might be the last nba action fans see for awhile. >> i don't think we're closer. in fact, it worries me that we're not closer, and that we spent all this time trying to get closer. we have a huge philosophical divide. >> reporter: nba players are now locked out, joining professional football players who are in the same boat. >> what we're doing on the business of football on the macro scale is about getting a fair deal done, and trying to get back to the game of business of football as quickly as possible. >> reporter: heading into this holiday weekend at a time fans would be dreaming of players who might join their team next season -- >> i think the fans should have a lockup. >> reporter: it's the first time
8:19am
since the winter of '94-'95 when it was hockey and baseball. >> i'll read the paper, watch other tv programs. i'll live without it. >> reporter: three weeks from now football was supposed to open training camps. highly unlikely now. the cry for sports fans, thank goodness for baseball. jim axelrod, cbs news, new york. later this morning, the women's final at wimbledon, maria sharapova returns to the championship match for the first time since winning the title seven years ago as a 17 years old. her opponent petrak kvitrova. lonnie quinn now the weather. >> it's really hot in the

♪ food, glorious food ah, the kids from the musical "oliver" dreaming about food, glorious food. this morning we're not dreaming, we're taking a glorious tour testing some of the best foods this country has to offer. welcome to "the early show," i'm russ mitchell. >> and i'm rebecca jarvis. we'll begin our "taste of america" food festival, a culinary tour of the nation's most delicious cuisines, why we love the foods we love and how to beat some of the cravings. we'll help you find a better way. >> we'll head to are iry for some of the best clam chowder never where. david gravino, owner of iggy's
8:31am
ch clamboy's will show us some chowder. both sides rested their case in the caseiest'ant casey anthony case. >> reporter: another bombshell. prosecutor attorney said to prove the possible means by which 2-year-old caylee anthony died. searches made weeks before her daughter died. >> the smell of this evidence has been the feature of this
8:32am
whole thing. >> reporter: proving premeditation could be vital to a prosecution case hipderred by a lack of direct evidence there is no smoking gun, no witness to the crime, and no official cause of death, a point the defense capitalized on in the opening statements. >> the defense exhibit d.o. >> reporter: the defense claims kalie drowned in the family's swimming pool and george anthony helped casey hide the body only one witness, george's alleged former mistress. >> he told me it was an accident that snowballed out of control. >> reporter: on the stand george repeatedly denied the affair, the drowning and allegations that he molested casey. all points the defense made at the start of the trial. the only other person who could have verified the claims was casey herself, and she refused to testify. >> it is your decision not to testify. >> yes, sir. >> reporter: holes in the prosecution and defense, the jury will have to decide which
8:33am
side was able to plug more of them. troy roberts, cbs news, new york. >> joining us now is legal analyst and criminologist casey jordan good to see you. what struck but this latest testimony. >> two big things. we're sure that cindy anthony was lying about doing the computer searches on chloroform. she had to have been at work that day including the general counsel of the company she worked for, explained about the time cards and her computer logins and on the day she said she searched for chloroform she was at work, not only that, we have her nurse supervisor, explained she couldn't have had time off in the middle of the day and finally we had forensic evidence that showed that the brain dust for lack of a better word that they had said had to have been the result of a bad autopsy and the question of whether she was little kalie was the victim of an accident
8:34am
inorganic material, sediment from the flooding so a great day for the state. >> casey anthony refusing to testify. what does that say when a defendant does not testify? >> the judge is going to remind them she didn't have to testify. that was part of their voir dire and because of the opening statement they have spending five or six weeks expecting her to testify. when it didn't happen, everyone was disappointed, because the defense had raised a level of expectation. it's true they don't have to prove anything but they had put out this fact pattern, this scenario and then they failed to corroborate it in any way. only casey anthony could have done that. most people think the defense case crumbled. >> what can we expect to hear during tomorrow's closing arguments? >> you'll hear organized arguments about the evidence. the evidence can fall in either direction depending on your perspective. we know the state is going to go
8:35am
methodically through all of the facts they're going to say support first-degree murder and the defense will say they didn't prove the cause of death, they have never really refuted the accident scenario, they haven't proved she didn't drown and you have to leave it to the jury to decide which way they're leaning towards. >> there's the phrase reasonable doubt which the defense has to prove. when you look at the case and following it from the beginning do you think the defense did a good job trying to prove that? >> i think the defense made some really bad tactical errors with that opening statement. i think they would have done much better to present some kind of accident scenario without painting a picture of how it happened. they did not address the 31 days in which casey anthony never reported her daughter missing. even under their scenario they never explained the allegations of sexual abuse. this jury is left with perhaps some doubt that isn't reasonable. all of their questions and the
8:36am
scenario that was laid out by the defense was never really shown to them. they don't know what happened to caylee, but it's really down to which side can convince this jury that it fits their scenario. >> quickly which way do you expect this to go? >> i think they'll compromise and go to aggravated manslaughter. i think after yesterday they'll go back to manslaughter. first degree. >> when the verdict is reached we'll have 48 hours mystery. lonnie quinn with another check of weather. >> right to my weather headlines, searing heat in arizona today, no rain in sight for you. yuma, arizona, close to 102 degrees. as a matter of fact, a flip-flop those numbers, yuma, arizona, close to 120 degrees. the actual forecast high in
8:37am
yuma, today today, 118. 117 in aio, 117 in tucson. there's not a lot of rain really anywhere in the u.s. a little bit up around nebraska and kansas, a little bit pushing through the ohio valley, down around florida and southern florida, florida keys you'll pick up a little bit as well, possibly up into central florida. that's a quick look at the national picture. here's ace closer look at the weather for your weekend. >> a happy fourth of july weekend to all of you and soaking up this glorious weather in new york city. rebecca is out live on the plaza. >> thank you.
8:38am
we have a great crowd out here on the plaza. come up next our "taste of america" a special show devoted to our love of great food. why we crave what we crave. coming up next on "the early show" on cbs. the fast absorbing body lotion for moisture that lasts all day with breakthrough 24 hour hydraiq technology. ♪ absorbs in seconds. ♪ lasts for hours. ♪ new express hydration with hydraiq. part of the essentials range. nivea. a hundred years of skincare for life. it's a cloud of depression. and although you've been on an antidepressant for at least six weeks, you're frustrated that your depressive symptoms are still with you. seroquel xr, when added to an antidepressant, is approved for the treatment of major depressive disorder.
8:39am
for many, taking seroquel xr with an antidepressant was proven more effective than an antidepressant alone for treating unresolved symptoms of depression. talk to your doctor about seroquel xr. then visit seroquelxr.com for a free trial offer. call your doctor if you have unusual changes in mood, behavior, or thoughts of suicide. antidepressants can increase these in children,teens, and young adults. elderly dementia patients taking seroquel xr have an increased risk of death. call your doctor if you have fever, stiff muscles, and confusion, as these may be signs of a life-threatening reaction or if you have uncontrollable muscle movements, as these could become permanent. high blood sugar has been reported with seroquel xr and medicines like it and in extreme cases can lead to coma or death. your doctor should check for cataracts. other risks include decreases in white blood cells, which can be fatal, seizures, increased cholesterol, weight gain, dizziness on standing, drowsiness,impaired judgment, and trouble swallowing. use caution before driving or operating machinery.

we begin our second annual "taste of america" food festival here at "the early show" with a look at what triggers our hunger. what makes us crave what we crave. here to break down the science is frances largemen rau. always great to have you with us. >> always great to be here. you smell the smells. what's going out here on the plaza and immediately your brain says you're hungry. >> about 200 times a day we have to fight off cravings and things come in from tv, from magazines we look at, smells of food and so basically it's a connection between our eyes and our hypothalmus and that creates a
8:42am
craving. >> it's all of these sort of exterior things taking place around us. >> right. >> internally there's things that can create cravings, exhaustion, fatigue or stress can create a craving. >> also alcohol intake, dehydration, sometimes we confuse dehydration with true hunger and the sight and smell of food and basically for the fourth of july we have many of these things going on, the alcohol, lack of sleep and sight and smell of food. there are things you can do to combat the triggers >> like what, frances? >> turn your kitchen into a skinny kitchen. adjust your lighting. super bright lights, like what you might find in fast food restaurant makes you eat really fast and of course when we eat quickly we eat more and really dim lighting like romantic restaurant lowers your inhibitions so you eat more, drink more. go with about a 60 to 75 watt bulb. >> so if you're eating outside this weekend at a barbecue is
8:43am
that going to help? >> you can't really control that but what you could control at a barbecue is the size of the plate you take. so go for the smaller one versus the really huge 10 or 12 inch because you're basically going to eat everything on your plate, the bigger the plate the more food you'll put on it. the same is true for cutlery. so downsize your forks and your spoons at home and something that i actually do is i use a tiny little demitas spoon, and it makes it last forever. you can play these tricks on yourself and they work. >> they actually do work. say you do have the hunger cravings, maybe it's this weekend you have the hunger cravings. how do you find a way to manage your way through them? >> billion, it's summer and these are seasonal favorites. there's no reason why you shouldn't be sampling the delicious foods. keep everything in check. think about your serving size, whether you're truly hungry web you're eating them and just
8:44am
enjoy it but keep it reasonable and go easy on the alcohol. >> okay, i've also heard in terms of what you drink if you drink more water all of the sudden that's going to fill your stomach up, maybe you'll eat less of the high caloric foods. >> that's right. >> what do you recommend people eat to counteract and counter balance some of the other items? >> any low calorie vegetable, especially if you're a nervous snacker which some people are, the low calorie foods, cucumber slices, raw carrots, that will help fill you up so you have less room for the really rich stuff. >> frances, have a great weekend, enjoy your fourth of july. congratulations again. i know you're expecting. >> good having cravings. >> exactly, pregnant cravings. here's russ. >> thank you. up next our culinary trip around the nation with a trip to rhode
